History: The Inter-Allied War (1913) was the cause of Bulgaria's first national catastrophe with very severe consequences for the Bulgarian population, ironically left outside its borders. Taking advantage of the conflict between the countries of the Balkan Union (Bulgaria, Serbia, Greece and Montenegro) and the subsequent accession of Romania, Turkey violates the post-Balkan Peace Treaty by crossing the Media-Enos border line and recapturing the liberated Bulgarian lands. Eastern Thrace. Bulgaria found itself at war with all its neighbors, suffered defeat after defeat and was forced to withdraw its troops from the Turkish border, leaving the Bulgarian population defenseless in the occupied zone. Particularly tragic is the fate of the Bulgarians in Eastern Thrace after Turkey's refusal to withdraw, who were subjected to unprecedented genocide and physical extermination (the Constantinople Peace Treaty, concluded a little later in 1913, ended the Balkan War and Bulgaria lost almost all of Eastern Thrace). The protection of the local population is taken over by a handful of brave men who gather detachments and organize the resistance in White Sea Thrace. Two of the voivodes - Dimitar Madjarov and Rusi Slavov, managed to save over 20,000 Bulgarians from Turkish atrocities, transferring them to the Bulgarian bank of the Arda River. Not far from the village of Yatadzhik (now Madzharovo), a refugee column was attacked, ambushed by a bashibozuk and a regular Turkish army, killing about 2,000 children, women, men and the elderly. The descendants of the refugees from Yatadzhik from White Sea Thrace are scattered all over Bulgaria today, but the ancestral memory and the memory of those terrible days of 1913, passed down from generation to generation, gathers them at the place of death of their ancestors every year.
Description: Thracian memorial complex with pantheon-ossuary, chapel “St. Petka Bulgarska ”and a monument-symbol“ Thrace without borders ”, declared a historical cultural monument of local significance. It was built in memory of the refugees killed near the village of Yatadzhik (now Madzharovo) by the greatest pogrom against the Bulgarians in Eastern Thrace in 1913. At the initiative of local Thracian societies in 1928 for the first time a pilgrimage was organized at the place of death. it has become a tradition to this day, and the search for the remains of those killed in a mass grave has begun. Later, in 1948, the pantheon was built, where the found bones were moved. The unveiling was attended by the voivode Dimitar Madjarov, who turned back the wheel of history and told his memories to an eyewitness and direct participant in the tragic events of 1913. Subsequently, the monument-symbol "Thrace without Borders" was built, and in 1995 - and the chapel “St. Petka Bulgarian ”.
